No U.S. official has said so publicly, but it is known that the United States delayed ma- jor arms commitments to Israel while State Secretary Henry Kissinler was working out a troops disengagement agreement between the Israelis and the Egyptians. Israeli dependence on the United States for arms has given the U.S. leverage to as- sure that the Israeli govern- B.C. going with DST NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. (CP) Premier Dave Barrett said Monday the British Columbia government will go ahead with daylight time as scheduled this weekend. Mr. Barrett made the statement when asked whether B C. might reconsider introduction of daylight time on Feb. 3 in light of introduction in the United States Senate Monday oT legislation to repeal daylight time during the winter. "I won't speculate on what the United States said Mr. Barrett. "I understand they are having difficulty deciding who's running the he said. The premier said B.C. is going ahead because "we want to give it a try and see how it works out. "We think the response we have had so far has been pretty good. We want to give it a try. If it works out, fine. If it doesn't, we will scrap he said. Mr Barrett said the government will try daylight time through April, when it has ordinarily been introduced, until the fall, when the reaction to the spring experience will be assessed. Soviets end rocket tests MOSCOW (Reuter) An expected 17-day series of Soviet rocket launchings in the Pacific has ended after only three days, it was an- nounced Sunday. The announcement by the news agency Tass gave no reason for the cut in the program but said that ships and aircraft will be free to cross the designated area beginning today. mg sales prompt layoffs TORONTO (CP) Sagging automobile sales, especially in the United States, brought additional layoff notices Fri- day from Canadian auto makers. Chrysler Canada Ltd. an- nounced 250 low-seniority workers will be laid off from its engine plant at Windsor, Ont., effective Feb 1 because of low demand. The plant employs about Ford Motor Co. Ltd. said it will close its car assembly plant at Oakville, Ont., for five days from Feb. 4, affecting about hourly- paid employees. Ford also placed 46 Oakville employees on indefinite layoff, adding to the 75 earlier laid off there along with 175 at St Thomas, Ont., and 670 at Windsor. Ford's plant at Oakville pro- duces about in- termediate and standard-size cars a week, 80 per cent of them destined for the United States. Car sales have been slump- ing in the U.S. as a result of economic uncertainty and the energy crisis. Canadian vehicles sales by Ford during the first 20 days of January are about two per cent ahead of those of the corresponding period a year ago. Ford Motor Co. of Detroit announced additional layoff of workers Friday, adding to given notice earlier. General Motors in Detroit said Thursday it Will cut pro- duction and leave assemblers in 14 plants without work. It was GM's se- cond layoff since Jan. 1. GM laid off work- indefinitely-be- tween Jan. 7 and Jan. 24. ment will be co-operative, an American said. While some additional U.S. weapons are expected to flow to Israel in the wake of the Egyptian-Israeli agreement, the United States probably will be in no hurry to meet Israel's full arms re- quirements. TOUGH TALKS AHEAD That is because some of the most complex and tough Arab- Israeli negotiations are yet to come, involving possible dis- engagement and withdrawal on the Syrian front and, behond that, a permanent resolution of long-standing territorial questions in the Middle East. Thus, there are indications the United States will want to keep its leverage on Israel for those difficult future negotia- tions. This may mean that arms shipments would be slowed again if the Israelis become balky. Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Dayan has been here twice since the October war to push for U.S. approval of ship- ment of planes, tanks, mis- siles, electronic equipment and other materiel. LOSSES REPLACED The United States sent about billion of military hardware to Israel during and after the 18-day war, mostly to replace battle losses. This equipment included more than 90 F-4 Phantoms and A-4 Skyhawk jets and several hundred tanks. But Israel says that it needs much more than that to regain a military balance with Egypt and Syria, whose armed forces are reported to have been rebuilt by the Soviet Union to greater strength than before the October war. The additional Israeli arms request is said to total between billion and billion, but so far there has been firm U.S.-Israeli agree- ment on only some of this re- quest. Second thoughts about DST NEW YORK (AP) State and local authorities in the United States say that despite complaints about children walking to school in the dark, there is no firm proof that winter daylight time has caused any significant increase in accidents. Officials checked by The As- sociated Press said it is too early to measure the impact of daylight time and added that it always is difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of many accidents. Year-round daylight time went into effect Jan. 6 as an energy-conservation mea- sure. A recent AP survey of utility officials showed the effects of the switch so far were minor an electricity saving of less than one per cent. Senator Dick Clark (Dem. Iowa) backed by Majority Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana, have introduced legislation on Monday urging Congress to repeal winter daylight time. Clark said that the energy saving is not worth the risk to children. Similar bills have been in- troduced in the House of Representatives and the Florida legislature is meeting in special session today to vote on a move to return the state to standard time Eight children have been killed in early-morning acci- dents in Florida since daylight time took effect. Only two died in the same period last year. Florida Gov. Reubin Askew said- "The inescapable con- clusion is that the darkness had a great deal to do with the pre-dawn deaths." Most officials elsewhere were reluctant to put all the blame for the accidents on daylight time. They said that weather was a factor as was possible carelessness by some drivers. On the plus side, authorities said the gasoline shortage has reduced on driving and thus on accidents in general and also noted that lower speed limits mean fewer and less-serious accidents FIRST CRAFTS In eastern Quebec, the earliest settlers combined farming with seafaring, lumbering and craftsmanship.
